Was so impressed to see Claude Monet pairings as well as the Rodin sculptors. Also saw the Woman in hair painting by Matisse. I was so happy. No photos allowed though while inside the museum. But the view outside the museum was so nice.

I was pretty much surprised to see quality collection of famous foreign paintings as a private museum. The main building isn't large, but worthwhile visiting!

This is really excellent. It’s like the Noah’s ark of European impressionists. There’s a Monet, Sisley, Van Gogh, Picasso, Renoir, even right up to including Andy Warhol . The main gallery is quite extensive plus there are two other galleries mainly of Asian art included...More

I had never heard of Kojima Torajiro until I walked into this museum. Now he is one of my favorite impressionist artists. Not only was he a brilliant painter, but with the backing of his patron, he assembled an amazing collection of European art by...More

Although we are not serious art buffs, we enjoyed the exhibits tremendously. The very well curated collection of classics to modern art was displayed very effectively in a lovely mansion. It was not crowded when we visited which made for a very conducive environment. The...More
